Hear what our associates say about developing at Capital Group.

Capital is made up of a diverse collection of people, connected by common values and an uncommon sense of purpose. Meet Vickie.

Our differences make us better

We improve peoples’ lives through successful investing, enabling millions of investors from all walks of life to fulfill their dreams and long-term financial goals, whatever they might be.

We’re united in purpose and values that include integrity, collaboration and mutual respect, and we flourish by seeking out and embracing our differences. We wear some of those differences on the surface. Many others are unseen. All are vital to who we are.

We’re committed to an environment where we can bring our true, best selves to work. That’s why we created Capital Communities, where associates with common interests can connect and grow. With more than 20 Capital Communities up and running, it’s easy to find where you fit in.

Meet a few of our amazing Capital Communities in action.

Last year, Capital donated more than US$25 million to 3,000 nonprofits on behalf of our associates. It’s not the numbers that make our giving program impressive – it’s the fact that all our donations are influenced directly by our associates. 

Come invest in your community

As an investment manager, we improve millions of people’s lives through successful investing.  And, as individuals and groups, our associates help thousands of nonprofits and their beneficiaries through their generous gifts of time, energy and resources.

How involved are our associates in our giving programs? In a word – very. Associates decide which charities we support through matching gifts, grants and service hours. From donating to local school bake sales to sponsoring refugees in Africa, Capital Group associates tell us what organizations they care about and decide where we allocate money. With over 7,500 passionate associates globally, it’s no surprise that we sponsored 3,000 non-profits last year! Bottom line: no matter how you like to give back to your community, we have a program that will help you make a difference.

    I have been working at Capital Group full-time (More than 5 years)


    Capital Group is a rare organization that practices what it preaches. If you are willing to put in the effort to improve yourself while delivering value to the organization , you will be recognized and rewarded. This is not hard to do. Be your true self, learn the ropes, stay true to the CG core values, and the career upsides are there!


    Probably the one con is that limited number of internal openings if you are very specialized in your approach to work. If you are willing to learn and grow the upsides can be there. You have to manage your career first and foremost.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capital Group.


    Two-hour interview -- first with a manager, then with the head proofreader. It began with a description of the position, followed by an in-depth discussion of my background. Both interviewers were personable and polite.
